Bishop (Arizona Vengeance #1) by Sawyer Bennett
Meet the Arizona Vengeance, hockey’s hottest new team. They’re burning up the ice—until a one-night-stand with the coach’s daughter freezes one player in his skates.
Bishop Scott, co-captain. Not too shabby, huh? It’s all part of my fresh start with the NHL’s latest expansion team, and that means new teammates, a new coach, a new city, and a big new contract. Basically, I cannot f***ing wait to show my old squad what they’re missing.
But first, I decide to check out the town before the grind begins. Turns out Arizona chicks are totally smokin’, and I’m fortunate enough to meet one who’s looking for the same thing I am: a night of anonymous, unforgettable, no-strings-attached sex.
Fast forward to the Vengeance arena. It’s the last place I expect to see her again—let alone in her own office. Then bells go off and I finally realize who this girl is: Brooke Perron. My new coach’s daughter. All of a sudden, we’re picking up right where we left off, which means our hands are all over each other. That’s when her dad—my boss—walks in. And before I can get a word out, Brooke’s introducing me as her fiancé.
Sure, she just saved my ass. So why do I get the feeling Brooke’s going to turn my world upside down? Maybe it’s because this fake relationship feels way too real…
I almost teared up a little bit when I thought we’d seen our last hockey book from Sawyer Bennett’s Carolina Cold Fury team. So, I was thrilled to see she started a new hockey series with the Arizona Vengeance team, and Bishop is first up for introduction.
Fake engagement series have never really been a favorite of mine, but I can see why Brooke jumped in to try and save Bishop from her father’s wrath. Seems like all the other fake engagements are for revenge, or spite or to save face in an awkward breakup situation. It’s hard to find fault when she did it to try to save Bishop’s place on the team. I think it was a little extreme, but hey, we don’t all think things through under pressure.
This is a new expansion team and it’s a group of guys that might know of each other professionally, but don’t know each other personally, so, I see lots of drama and tension unfolding in the coming series and I can’t wait for more.
